Project funded by: (Arts and) Humanities Research Board

Description:

The project seeks to reconstruct, contextualise and interpret the coinage produced in the Roman provinces, from the death of Julius Caesar (44 B.C.) to the reign of Diocletian (AD 284-305).

Objectives:

The project aims to provide a reliable and full reconstruction of Roman provincial coinage by collecting material from 10 international ‘core collections’, supplemented by much material from private collections and auction catalogues. It will contextualise the reconstruction in terms of Roman imperial and local histories, while exploring the balance between central and local control.
